USER REVIEWS

An Image-Editor that delivers a Remarkable Creative Power and Flexibility

By Maria Bernabe

On Wednesday, May 28, 2014

It may be hard to live in the shadow of those big names. Just like CorelDraw Graphics Suite it is always been overshadowed by the programs of Adobe’s much luxurious Creative Suite. However Corel’s flagship suite is continuing to play the game. What I like about CorelDraw is that they remain determined and made an outstanding update. In this version CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 has included applications for layout, illustration, photo-editing, animation and web graphics that is much better with prior versions.

In addition, I like the few modifications to the drawing tools and adding a few new ones. It also incorporates a new tool that facilitates you to link objects by connecting it with a line. Power TRACE lets you convert bitmaps into vector images with higher precision. Also, the Mesh-Fill tool is more resourceful and there is a new transparency option.

I believe CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 is one of the most extensive suites of graphics software available. It is also a lot smoother to handle, unlike its competition. For me, this software is always been the first choice since CorelDraw3 because of its versatility and a cheaper price than the other but yet powerful tool.

Pros

  • It has much improved features
  • It has a PNG support

Cons

  • Some tools might be too frustrating for beginners

A Good Product That is Much Cheaper than Adobe Creative Suite

By Rose Sincro

On Wednesday, May 28, 2014

CorelDraw Graphics X5 is a multipurpose graphic design program that helps me express ideas for any media in a professional way. Illustrate, trace, layout, design web graphics, animation and photo edit with a whole solution for visual communication.

I have been using CorelDraw Graphic Suite for almost 10 years now. I use this software because it is simply a better, easier, more handy vector drawing tool than Illustrator. For beginners or for non professionals who need to create basic design work, this software is more easier to use than Adobe Creative Suite. Also, with this software I can now create a good-looking logos and signs to web graphics, animations, billboards and many more. Anything that you make you can publish to PDF for printing.

Overall, CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 is one of the most influential and simple to use graphics programs out there. You must have this version because it will help you to create extraordinary designs faster.

Pros

  • A cheap software compared to others
  • Wide range of materials to draw on

Cons

  • You have to learn the Corel way of doing things
